Rise of Coding : Why We Should All Learn A Little Code [INFOGRAPHIC]

Ads by Google

One of the entries on my New Year resolutions this year is to learn how to code. With it being October tomorrow, I am rapidly running out of time if I am going to make the December 31st deadline for getting started. But my procrastination is partly due to the fact that I look upon programming code as difficult. While I understand basic HTML, things like Javascript, CSS, Ruby on Rails, and Python go totally over my head, no matter how determined I am to learn them.

But it’s worth the effort to keep trying, as today’s infographic, from www.onlinecollege.org, shows. Those with knowledge of programming code can expect to be offered jobs with very attractive salaries. Google and Facebook are known for being willing to pay top dollar to retain a company’s engineers when they buy the place out. With the world increasingly being run by computers and living on the Internet, demand will constantly stay high for those who can create websites and keep servers running.

What about you? Are you currently trying to learn how to code? If so, how easy or difficult are you finding it? If you’re not learning yet, which code would you like to try to learn, and why?
